The SEO says there are not enough words for this page, but there is no more to say. This page is just a list of the events and happenings in our life.

Defining text length is quite obvious: it’s how long your text is. But, why does it matter? Well, you have a higher chance of ranking in Google if you write long, high-quality musings, of 1000 words or more. We’ve also experienced this ourselves; we have written quite some articles that are over 2500 words. They are cornerstone content and they help our organic traffic grow. Here’s how long articles contribute to SEO:

When your musing is longer, Google has more clues to determine what it is about. The longer your (optimized) text, the more often your focus keyphrase appears. This is no excuse for keyphrase stuffing though! If you optimize your copy naturally, your focus keyphrase will pop up here and there throughout your musing. You can also fit in more synonyms and related keyphrases. In a longer post, you can add more headingslinks, and images, in which you can also mention the keyphrase. So more content, means more on-topic, high-quality information here.

A longer musing might also help you rank for multiple long-tail variants of the keyphrase you’ve optimized your text for. That’s because, in a lengthy text, you probably address various topics. Your article, or your other posts that take a deep-dive into the subtopic, will have a chance to turn up in search results for the long-tail variants of your keyphrase. If you do some smart internal linking you can even boost the traffic to the extensive post you’ve written. This will help you drive more organic traffic to your site.
